BLACK WATER: ABYSS (Blu-ray Review)
From SCREEN MEDIA
Review by Tiger the Terrible😽
I have a soft spot for killer critter movies - even a lot of the bad ones - so forgive me if I give Black Water: Abyss a more generous review than some might think it warrants. This is a horror subgenre so rife with bargain basement buffoonery that when I come across one which is put together pretty well, it’s hard not to view it favorably.
The film is a sequel to 2007’s Black Water, which I’ve never seen, but don’t fret if you haven't either. Aside from the director and another ravenous reptile, it’s an all new story with different characters. Five standard-issue twentysomethngs go spelunking in a deep underground cave. When a sudden storm causes flash flooding, they find themselves trapped. Making matters worse is the killer crocodile that’s down there with them. Or maybe several; the film doesn’t make it quite clear. If there is just one, he gets around this labyrinthine cave pretty damned fast,. On the other hand, all that exercise might explain his massive appetite.
